My Review Of The Doc "Hot Girls Wanted"

Posted 2015-06-10

I recently watched the documentary Hot Girls Wanted on Netflix, which is described as:
"This 2015 Sundance Film Festival breakout documentary from producer Rashida Jones spotlights the 'amateur' porn industry and the women it exploits."
Seeing as I am a webmaster that reviews adult websites, I too know a little about the industry...and I have a lot of opinionated problems with the movie.

1 - These Women Are NOT Amateurs!
Merriam Webster defines "amateur" as:
"a person who does something (such as a sport or hobby) for pleasure and not as a job"
An amateur does NOT get paid. They were all signed to a contract with an agency, which set them up for portfolio photoshoots, and then got them paid jobs.

2 - OMG!! Her Family Found Out!!
15 or so years ago, when the company I was working for was doing adult orientated photoshoots of women, one of the 1st things they were told was that people WILL find out.  Someone they know will eventually see their pics online.  This was well before Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and maybe even My Space.  I also wanted to point out the hypocrisy in this doc where the one woman from Texas was filmed out with her father hunting on Christmas Day.  Her father was clearly drink beer with a shotgun in his hand while they hunted, as well as enjoying a cold one in the car while driving home.  Nudity = BAD! Drinking & Driving & Hunting = GOOD!

3 - Everyone Is NOT Going To Be A Star!
This goes for any profession where you perform in the public eye, whether it's in porn, acting, modeling, dancing, singing, etc.  If the people that see your performance do not like it, you're not going to be in that business for very long.  Hollywood is full of people that didn't make it in the movies. NYC is full of models that can't get work.

4 - No One Is Exploited!
Merriam Webster defines "exploited" as:
"to make use of meanly or unfairly for one's own advantage."
I don't see where this applies to someone that's paid for their work, AND they are paid very well.  The one woman stated that she made $25,000 in 3 months.  That's $100,000 a year!  They are also required to sign a release/contract as far as what they will be doing on camera - it is all clearly spelled out.  They are also told that they'll be do this & this & this and if they want some extra money, they can do this or that, too. No one is getting cheated out of anything and they all know what they're getting into.

5 - I Refuse To Call Them "Girls"!
To me, referring to a female as a "girl" implies that they are not an adult.  These women are all over the age of 18 & are legal adults.  Calling them "girls" is (mostly) a marketing tactic to imply that they are not yet adults.

I have more, but this is my SFW website, so I'll keep those comments to myself Greenguy89
